Join top executives in San Francisco on July 11-12, to hear how leaders are integrating and optimizing AI investments for success. Learn More
This week, Travis (aka Superman*) and Stewart (aka Deadpool*) talk about AI and the internet of things (still the worst tech term in existence), conversational UI (hello, Ikea!), AI and customer service, and two opposing Facebook stories that are united by one common thread — how the social media leviathan makes its money.
*Personas assigned to our Dynamic Duo for their superhero appearance at MarTech Festival in London, where they’ll actually be in the same place at the same time!
We then interview Robert Rose, a content marketing genius and one of the founders of the Content Marketing Institute, who gives us the lowdown on what works, what doesn’t, and how you can win.
Join us in San Francisco on July 11-12, where top executives will share how they have integrated and optimized AI investments for success and avoided common pitfalls.
